Speaking exclusively to Independent.ie in Rio de Janeiro, Delaney said that he hopes a European side lifts the World Cup trophy on South American soil for the first time.

"I'd love to see a European team win it. I don't really care who wins it once it's a European side.

It's had it all so far, so far so good. To date, a great advertisement for association football and that was badly needed."
